Apologies if this has been done to death before, but am new around here and thought I'd ask anyway..... What is the collective wisdom concerning an MAN as a base chassis for an Expedition Vehicle? A lot of what I've read certainly suggest that they are an excellent vehicle and I note that both Unicat and Action Mobile feature them a lot in their promotional material.
I've heard various versions of the Unicat closing then reopening issue. Anybody got any first hand experience of what happened? While I am yet to visit Unicat (planning to later this year) I am becoming concerned at the mounting cost of their product. Frankly I am finding the prices being asked beyond belief. I accept this stuff is engineered to operate in extreme conditions, and is first class in terms of fit out. Nonetheless they are talking BIG money. While I am prepared to pay to get what I need, I am wondering if any of you are able to give first hand information on how these things stack up in the real world...
